The “Buffett tax rule” being promoted by Occupy Wall Street protesters is exactly what the Wall Street-owned Obama administration wants
Written by Paul Joseph Watson
This is so off the mark it's kinda funny:
"As for Ron Paul, Rick Perry, Chris Christie and many other Republicans, they are the bailed-out bankers’ boys."
A new television ad about the U.S. national debt produced by Citizens Against Government Waste has been deemed "too controversial" by major networks including ABC, A&E and The History Channel and will not be shown on those channels. The commercial is a homage to a 1986 ad that was entitled "The Deficit Trials" that was also banned by the major networks. Apparently telling the truth about the national debt is a little too "hot" for the major networks to handle. But perhaps it is time to tell the American people the truth. In 1986, the U.S. national debt was around 2 trillion dollars.
Ron Paul supporters were noticed (in a positive way) and properly credited with participating at the Occupy Wall Street Protest in New York on Television, on MSNBC's Lawrence O'Donnell show.
After a rambling introduction by Lawrence O'Donnell, the piece featured a great interview with filmmaker Michael Moore, who eloquently stated that this is not about "liberals, conservatives, Left, Right, Democrats, Republicans", etc., ...
Jamie Dimon, JPMorgan Chase & Co. (JPM)’s chief executive officer who has been critical of new banking rules, met yesterday with Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney who has called for their repeal.
Dimon, who was once dubbed President Barack Obama’s “favorite banker” by The New York Times, publicly questioned Federal Reserve Chairman Ben S. Bernanke in June on financial regulatory costs. He also called and e-mailed lawmakers as House and Senate negotiators wrote the final banking bill.
Sept. 26 (Bloomberg) -- Goldman Sachs Group Inc. won dismissal of suits over employee bonuses filed in New York by shareholders who called the awards a waste of assets.
Security Police & Fire Professionals of America Retirement Fund and Judith A. Miller sued the investment bank in December 2009, accusing directors and executives of breaching their fiduciary duties by reserving half of the company’s net revenue for employee compensation. Shareholders Ken Brown and Central Laborers Pension Fund filed similar suits the following month.
The Federal Reserve wants to know what you are saying about it. In fact, the Federal Reserve has announced plans to identify "key bloggers" and to monitor "billions of conversations" about the Fed on Facebook, Twitter, forums and blogs. This is yet another sign that the alternative media is having a dramatic impact. As first reported on Zero Hedge, the Federal Reserve Bank of New York has issued a "Request for Proposal" to suppliers who may be interested in participating in the development of a "Sentiment Analysis And Social Media Monitoring Solution". In other words, the Federal Reserve wants to develop a highly sophisticated system that will gather everything that you and I say about the Federal Reserve on the Internet and that will analyze what our feelings about the Fed are. Obviously, any "positive" feelings about the Fed would not be a problem. What they really want to do is to gather information on everyone that views the Federal Reserve negatively. It is unclear how they plan to use this information once they have it, but considering how many alternative media sources have been shut down lately, this is obviously a very troubling sign.

Financial crooks brought down the world's economy - but the feds are doing more to protect them than to prosecute them
Over drinks at a bar on a dreary, snowy night in Washington this past month, a former Senate investigator laughed as he polished off his beer.
"Everything's fucked up, and nobody goes to jail," he said. "That's your whole story right there. Hell, you don't even have to write the rest of it. Just write that."
I put down my notebook. "Just that?"
I had an idea for doing short videos on single issue topics in the style of the MAC vs PC ads. Ours will be Ron Paul vs the State, Liberty vs Authoritarianism, Freedom vs Tyranny.
These videos could be posted on various websites targeted for those audiences. They will be informative and educational as well as provocative and entertaining. Since Dr. Paul’s followers OWN the internet (at least until the State shuts it down) we better take advantage of our strengths. Before the videos are made we will need to tighten up the scripts.
I found this on Zerohedge.com
Apparently there is a protest right now trying to shut down Wall Street, as in the actual street in NYC.
Not sure the agenda of the protesters, but I am going to check it out and see what I can dig up.
Today's news is coming on fast and furious. Reggie Middleton of BoomBust Blog at http://boombustblog.com/ has posted how "The Germans, Italians, French... Most Of Western Europe [are] On The Brink Of Bank Collapse! You know the saying: It's not paranoia if they're really after you. Europe is much, much closer to universal bank collapse than the media is letting on." Middleton goes on to demonstrate the EuroZone's exposure to Greece's default this weekend.
Let's tie this latest bit of dread to this autumn's outbreak of global war.
Lindsey Williams on Jonathan May - Plans of the International Bankers for the World 1986.
A Pretty interesting presentation a long time ago. A faster pretty snappy Lindsey for those that think he nowadays is not getting to the point. Ron was also snappier in younger years.
Iceland's On-going Revolution
Mon, 01 Aug 2011 16:44 CDT
An Italian radio program's story about Iceland's on-going revolution is a stunning example of how little our media tells us about the rest of the world. Americans may remember that at the start of the 2008 financial crisis, Iceland literally went bankrupt. The reasons were mentioned only in passing, and since then, this little-known member of the European Union fell back into oblivion.
The above is the title as someone at CNBC has it linked on the main page.
The official story line is:
"The Financial Times, which first reported news of Sharma's resignation, said his resignation is not related to S&P's downgrade of the United States' credit rating or reports that the agency is being probed by the U.S. Justice Department in connection with its ratings of mortgage securities".
"The board of McGraw-Hill Companies made the decision to replace Sharma at a meeting where it also discussed its ongoing strategic review on Monday, the Financial Times said."
